The oil smell decreased by at least half immediately. During the following weeks and finally today, I can say the smell is completely gone.

I stopped by my indie and spoke to him a couple of weeks ago while the smell was still there. He said that the first thing he would have checked was the oil separator. I stopped again this morning and told him the smell was completely gone. He said that when I changed the oil separator and without thoroughly cleaning the system, that it could take a week or two for everything to resume to normal. He said that there could have been oil stuck in places it should not have been, and took time to clear.

Anyway, that is my story. Thanks for those that offered suggestions.

Do you have the part number for the oil separator?

Here is a quick internet search:
https://www.google.com/search?client...=mb+6460101462

I got mine from rmeuropean.com under this part number:
6460101462-MFG604

I paid $122 for it. It looks like they are out of stock, but their price is $78.

Thanks for the part number, mercedes calls it an oil drip pan, ECS does call it an oil separator, but doesnt show up under 06 e320, a search wihout the part number in the parts houses was frustrating,
